Everyone in NYC has a story to tell, but how many of us can hop onstage and share it with a room full of strangers (without even asking for money)? Think of a tale you’d like to unload, then head to this storytelling throwdown, at which volunteers are drawn at random to share five-minute pieces.This week’s "Making Peace" prompt encourages speakers to share five-minute tales of comings and goings in NYC.

Fantastic choice for a night out with a difference. More interesting than a bad play, less annoying than an aggressive stand-up comedian… Some circuit-storytellers are maybe too polished, and some too nervous to compete, but others break your heart or leave the hair on the back of your neck standing up.
